Crowning the Waves: Navies of WW I and Emerged US Navy in the World

Few weeks earlier, one volume under Review mentioned focuses upon the Navies of WW I. Despite this being the end to Centennial to WW I's fini with Paris Peace Conference of 1919, no particular mention or commentary has emerged upon this history and the volume. Despite thinking such might, its contents having included some attention to the emergence of America's Navy on the world scene after 1898, this seems a moment to reflect back upon the Review with these materials presented here.

Re: X-Post: MiWSR: Hodge on Judge, "The Turn of the Tide in the Pacific War: Strategic Initiative, Intelligence, and Command, 1941–1943"

Interesting comments. It may be of interest to state that Nazi Germany was more dangerous than Imperial Japan. The mismatch between Japan and the US meant that it took approximately 30 percent of American combat power to destroy Japan while it took the combined efforts of the USA, the British Empire and the Soviet Union to destroy Nazi Germany. Further if the US had adopted a "Japan First" strategy, there is no indication that the American public would have been behind an effort to defeat the Nazis.
